The country is going to take this step to deal with the coronavirus situation. This rule will not apply only to Ireland.
The new restrictions are expected to take effect later this month, the AFP news agency reported.
Airlines UK says it needs to have a credible exit plan to get out of the policy and should review it weekly. People arriving in the UK must voluntarily separate in private residence.
Governments and airlines have told BBC News that quarantine means people can be expected to provide their address when they arrive at the border.
It is not yet clear how long the new travel ban will last and whether non-U.S. Residents will be allowed to stay in rented private accommodation.
Airlines representing British Airways, EasyJet and other UK-based airlines said in the UK, "We need to see the details of what they are offering."
Aviation Minister Kelly Tolhurst is expected to call a conference on Saturday to clarify the policy with airlines and airport representatives.
UK airports say the quarantine policy will have an impact not only on the UK aviation industry, but also on the wider economy.
